I assumed he lost it in the sun at the last minute but it seems he took his eye off it. It was an absolute shocker.

Not sure I saw one that bad in my lad's under 10s last season.

Drinks means bed for me. Time to listen on the radio and then watch wickets on my phone if I can be bothered. Fingers crossed we bat until lunch.

I don't get what he's trying at either. Curran needs to have a word with him about batting sensibly.

Mo and Currant did modestly well, but now Moeen got stuffed by Cummings just shy of what I’d hoped he’d manage in terms of survival and England are struggling again for an acceptable first innings score.

300 up but England are still miles away from a good score IMHO.

Surely Mitchell Starc would be a better option to Mitchell Marsh? Perhaps his heel is a bit tender.

Curran reminds me a little of Darren Gough with the bat.

Useful runs these from Curran and Broad. They have already brought the score up to better than I’d have feared.

100% of Cummins’ deliveries to Broad have been short. That’s just bizarre.

Broad gone. Can Anderson help get the score past 350?

Very good morning for the poms, theyve made a good contest of this today, should be a cracking test now although the wickets looking very bat friendly, will be a great afternoon cricket.

Silly run out.

The England tail did well to get the score close to 350 but that's probably still a hundred runs short of what they needed.

They will need to bowl well to prevent Australia taking a first innings lead.

If they don't do some damage with the new ball I can see Aus batting into day 4.

Agree, the late wickets last night set England back, though some of the runs today were bonus ones.

The middle part of a Sydney test is usually batting paradise.
